“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated” - Mark Twain

It’s an incredibly exciting week for PreMatches. We are happy to announce that PreMatches is under new management and effective immediately the operations will resume as usual.

Since its inception, PreMatches has been focused on analysing tens of thousands of soccer games every year and little about this will change. We are still PreMatches; we still post soccer analysis. Moving forward, we will be bringing our technology, tools, and team to PreMatches. We are simply bringing more to the table: more to the community and, importantly, more fresh content and better analysis. In upcoming months you can expect to see lots of new content and refresh of the design.

We would like to thank our customers and partners for all of their support!

2014-04-22 Better start at United than Ferguson is no consolation for Moyes

By Mike Collett LONDON (Reuters) - It will be no consolation to David Moyes or Manchester United but, in stark statistical terms, Moyes enjoyed more success in his first - and last - 51 matches in charge at Old Trafford than Alex Ferguson did. The reality is, however, that Ferguson had another 1,449 games to prove himself as the greatest manager in English soccer history while Moyes can only imagine what might have been if the United board had kept faith in him as their predecessors did with Ferguson 27 years ago. Ferguson left Aberdeen to come to Old Trafford, replacing the sacked Ron Atkinson, on November 1, 1986, and his first match as United manager ended in a 2-0 defeat at Oxford United.
